Pink is glamorous. If there’s one thing you should know about pink, it’s that its design possibilities for nails know no limits! One of the best nail shapes to use to flaunt the girly color is coffin nails.
Coffin nails, often called ballerina nails because of its shape similarities, can be short or long. They’re similar to stiletto nails, but their edges are more square than round or pointed. This makes them a very edgy and modern nail shape perfect for creating a mixture of looks.
If you have coffin nails currently or you’re just looking to upgrade, we’ll show you some gorgeous ways to pretty them up with pink!
